Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in Stockton. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. This is what we call a slab leak. It is often difficult to find the source of the leak because the pipe is hidden in the slab and water can escape slowly over time. To minimize damage to your home from a slab leak is important to act quickly.
If you can see the pipe, even a small leak is easy to trace. Slab leaks occur in the pipes buried deep in the concrete foundation of your home meaning that is not always visible.
Although it may not be possible to see the slab leak you can use the following techniques to diagnose an unseen leak:
While copper pipe is regarded as a reliable and long-lasting plumbing material, it can still fail. Some of the most common causes include:
Whatever the reason for the slab leak, it is important that the problem is found and repaired by a qualified plumber. This will prevent further, more expensive issues.
Finding the general area of a slab leak from the hot water line is straightforward. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. Locating a cold water-line leak is very challenging. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. We keep costs of the repair to a minimum by find the exact location.
The source of the leak requires electronic equipment that is made for slab leak detection. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. We avoid digging up the floor to find the issue because the sound travels through the slab. Non-destructive and non-invasive techniques are our specialty.
Once you know you have a slab leak, you have choices for repair. If the pipes are easily accessible we can make a direct repair, but this is rarely the case with slab leaks. We do not usually recommend digging up the floor to repair the leak as this can move the pipe and cause more problems in the future. Instead, a new pipe can be routed through the framework of the house isolating the area with leak.
